Gold Stocks Bullish Decline


Bookmark and Share

I previously wrote that practically nothing happened on thegold market, which is bearish since gold should be rallying or trading at higher levels, given the pre-election uncertainty. However, gold didnt wait for the elections to begin with its decline it plunged yesterday, taking silver and mining stocks along with it.

To be more precise, it was the mining stocks sector that brought down the rest. Miners moved and closed the day below their previous September and October lows, and therefore anyone who joined us recently is now gaining profits.

But, is every factor truly bearish for the miners? It is not the case!

Miners have been undermining gold, which is bearish, and they have also broken below the recent lows, which is also bearish. Moreover, miners have just declined on strong volume after opening the day with a price gap, which at first sight, is bearish.

The theory is that such sessions are particularly bearish, as they supposedly show the bears' strength. But, before applying anytrading tipinto practice, its important to check if it had indeed worked on a given market, especially in the recent past. And the aforementioned did work In the opposite way!

For the third time, miners are declining substantially during one day on a strong volume. We saw the same thing happening in mid-August and late-September. None of them were followed by lower miner prices. Instead, weve witnessed corrective upswings that didnt change the overall downtrend.

So, from here on in, will miners rally or decline? Overall, the very near term (until the elections in the U.S. and a day-two after that) is unclear. At this point, a temporary rebound here would not surprise me at all, and if we see one, I expect it to be followed by a major slide. Thats precisely what happened right before and after the elections in 2016.

The precious metals sector (miners included) moved higher right before the elections only to slide profoundly in the following days.

The post-election decline started from above the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement based on the preceding big upswing and the 50-day moving average. It ended once miners declined below the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement.

Could that happen again? It seems quite possible the history might repeat itself to a considerable degree. The GDX ETF is above its 38.2% Fibonacci retracement, and if it moves a bit higher, it will be relatively close to its 50-day moving average.

Moving below the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement just like in 2016 it would imply a move below $27.5, which could very well happen if gold declines significantly from here. And it is quite likely to do so, as I emphasized in myprevious analyses.
